Just ok
Chasity M, Houston, Texas

So I have been to many hotels and resorts and this was one was just ok. My biggest complaint would be the food! Everything was always either cold or room temperature, and not good!! Besides that the staff was friendly, room was nice, but there is nothing to give this resort more than 3 stars. Plus I wouldn't stay here again.

Too many locals......

This hotel is no more than a 3* ..Very disappointed!!!! Very frustrating, there is about 10% of staff that could actually speak & understand English..... we had to repeat our drink orders at least 3-4 times and most of the time they got the wrong order. We arrived on a Friday and the hotel was manic.....full of locals checking in! Reported the following event to reception, security and Unlimited Vacation Club - 2 nights of no sleep as there were about 10 young adults in the room next door partying until 05:30am!! After speaking to head of customer service we were told to look for another hotel that we were happy with😳😳. We spoke to the General Manager again nothing was solved apart from moving myself and partner to a room as our initial room had no partition between the bathroom and the bedroom (Basicaly i could see my partner on toilet and visa versa)!!!! Spoke to unlimited Vacation Club on the phone and told them how unhappy we were with the hotel, although very sympathetic they could only offer us an upgrade to the preferred club for an extra $1,200 ( which I did not have) and said they would look at refunding the 2 nights to compensate the sleepless nights. I had several conversation with many holiday makers and the same question kept coming up - the hotel care more about the locals than the rest of the guests!!! If I had known this before hand I would have not booked the Now Larimar!!!! We should all be treated EQUALLY.

Fun Time in the DR!

Had a really fun time here... Weather was great.. Staff was extraordinarily helpful, energetic and kind, although the language barrier was an issue at times. Beach was beautiful.. The resort itself was really lovely.. The food was average, I hate to say that, but, a few meals were sub-par. Drinks certainly were plentiful. If you want to just come to the DR, plunk your butt in the sand, you will not be disappointed here. If you are used to the Ritz Carlton, this may not be the place for you. A shout out to Ronnie in the Concierge Lounge bar. He was top-notch, always smiling and made some pretty incredible drinks. The "Beach Party" was a very good time... The Castaways breakfast crew was really awesome, too.. Home of the "bottomless" mimosa. A really great way to get your day started in the DR.

Birthday Vacation

All inclusive hotel right on the beach in the most exclusive tourist area in the country. I've been to many hotels in this are but always seem to come to Now Larimar because of everything it features. 24/7 room service, buffet service is 5 stars, many different restaurants and excursions. We went an island called Saona in a catamaran, food in every single place was amazing, Wilkin provided an amazing service, drinks everywhere you go, beach and pool. I highly recommend this hotel and even became a member of the vacation club. Will come back no doubt.

Great holiday!

I am debating to put it as excellent or not. There were a few points that sound be improved.The hotel and surrounding area is lovely. We stayed in a preferred hotel room. We are my husband, me and our 18 month old son. Room: Good size, clean and with jacuzzi on the balcony. We were on the ground floor with pool view. Cleaning unfortunately often very late in the day when we just she have come back from the beach or pool. Also bed sheets not changed when dirty- there was chocolate and dabs on it. Pools: 2 prefers pools which we mostly used and one big main pool. Also some big jacuzzis around. All nice and clean. Small kids pool available but a bit boring without any slide or anything for the kids. This could be improved. Beach: Nice and clean, plenty of lounges but dine umbrellas need fixing as not enough available to give shade. Food: We tried all restaurants, our favourite was the Italian one. Breakfast and lunch st castaway was great too. Yvelise was always very helpful and friendly.Main restaurant had plenty of choice. There was one high chair with wheels which was great to let our son pick his own food. I did not like the Mexican restaurant but my husband enjoyed it, The Asian one and French one were also good. Bars: The preffered lounge in the preferred are was lovely mainly down to the staff Maria A. When she was on a day off the service was not the same. This also applies for the sandbar. Antonio and Franklin were lovely and very attentive. The service was a bit a let down when Franklin was off. Franklin was always attentive and served us st the loungers. All other bars had a good stock and service but nothing special stood out. The sports bar good open earlier, especially when it rained as it would have given us something to do. Activities: Good choice of activities but some programs were cancelled last minute which was a shame. Again mainly during bad weather. Things to do: Unfortunately there is no playground for children and as our son was under2 he was not able to go to the kids club for free. This is only from3 onwards. We tried the babysitting a few times but our son was not happy there. He lives slides and things but they didn't really Tage him to play outside. Also it is an extra charge to use babysitting. When enquiring before booking the hotel we were told we could access the playground with him. This was jut the case as no parents were allowed in it. Not sure if it was the hotels or travel agents fault. We would have not picked this hotel if we would have known before. Still I think a playground for children would be great! Otherwise I would only recommend this hotel for kids over 3. One thing that really annoyed me is that a lot of staff members asked me to write a review here and mention their names so they can get a promotion or something. I was going to do that anyways but some waiters especially wanted to sit down with us and write it there and then with them. I am giving a honest review and not doing several ones on my actual holiday just for staff to get something out of it. If they are doing a gray job they will be remembered and mentioned anyways.
